Perler Beads Meet Karl Lagerfeld + Friends

Remember perler beads from your yesteryears of being a care free kid? I remember making tons of zoo animals, turning them into magnets and soon the refrigerator was covered with them from top to bottom. Enough reminiscing, someone has actually turned a decent profit off these babies. 

Enter Victor-John Villanueva, the maker of the oversized pixelated portrait of fashion's elite including Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Bill Cunningham and Andre Leon Talley to name just a few.

As luck would have it, Villanueva ran into Karl Lagerfeld himself while wearing his handcrafted necklace of said designer. How uncanny! What did Karl have to say about the necklace? "Send to Chanel, 31 Rue Cambon, Paris"! 

Check out more Villanueva's website 3PTPOP here. Love it!
